Many apple strudel recipes are a bit disappointing: this is not. It’s a rich mouthwatering but still healthy recipe, that you can variate adding Rum, or chocolate or any kind of nut you prefer…  Preheat the oven to 200°/375 F and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.


In a large non stick pan sauté the apples with butter for 4-5 minutes, until softened.


Then transfer on a bowl and add the vanilla extract, the lemon juice and zest, the caster sugar, the pine cone nuts and the raisin. Add the cinnamon powder. Add the breadcrumbs and work the mixture to combine. Lay out the pastry sheet into a long rectangle. Spread the filling on the center of the pastry, leaving a border of 2 inch.


Fold the long sides of pastry, than close the short sides with a gentle pressure.

Brush the surface with the egg yolk beaten.


Bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Cut into six pieces and serve warm.

  2. I have made your recipe to and it’s just extremely great. You make your recipes and tips entertaining and you still take care of to keep it smart. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is really a great blog.

  3. I just used the base apple strudel recipe and added dried cranberries, chopped walnuts and extra lemon zest…I found I needed to add quite a bit more liquid (maybe honey?), but overall they were a very nice texture and light. Broke apart easily but held up nicely. Not too sweet either.
